Husband, wife dead in apparent murder-suicide in Shoreline

A husband and wife are dead in what police called an apparent murder-suicide today in Shoreline.

Sgt. Kathleen Larson with the King County Sheriff’s Office said she could not immediately say whether the husband or wife was the shooter.

Larson said a woman called 911 just before 9 a.m. today to report hearing two shots fired in her home. The woman lives with her son, his wife and their 2-year-old child, Larson said.

The woman told police she went downstairs after hearing the shots and saw her daughter-in-law on the floor, and she appeared to have been shot.

Officers took the grandmother and child safely out of the home, and found the man and woman dead inside, Larson said.

“At this particular point it looks like it is a murder-suicide,” Larson said Saturday afternoon.

“There really won’t be any updates until the medical examiner does a full investigation, and we’ll do a parallel investigation,” she said.
